Our pressed sugarbeet pulp is made-to-order, with a guaranteed moisture level that will not exceed 75% (maximum). It can be fed fresh, or ensiled in a bunker-type silo or AG-Bag. Sugarbeet pulp has been recognized as a valuable livestock feed. It has a high energy value, is a good source of protein and contains minerals that are essential for animal health. It is also highly digestible and can reduce digestive disturbances. Sugarbeet pulp can be a key ingredient in livestock rations, especially for dairy and beef cattle.
BEET PULP PELLETS
Beet pulp is the fibrous vegetable matter of the sugarbeet which remains after sugar has been extracted. Following the diffusion process, pulp presses and gas-fired dryers remove water from the pulp. It is then formed into less bulky pellets which saves on freight costs and produces less waste. One ton of sugarbeets produces 110 pounds of pulp pellets. Beet pulp pellets are a very digestible fiber and useful as a highly nutritious, palatable, and absorptive feed for cattle. It is a high-energy, easy-to-digest food that helps to stimulate milk production.
MOLASSES & OTHER LIQUIDS
Beet Molasses is a co-product of the sugarbeet industry, and offers a valuable feed resource to the cattle and fermentation industries. Beet Molasses is the residual liquid left over from the sugar extraction process, providing an excellent source of carbohydrates for livestock. Other liquids include Condensed Molasses Solubles (CMS) and Betaine.
Lime is great for agricultural soils because it neutralizes acidic soils, increasing soil pH, increases microbiological activity; accelerating decomposition of crop residue, improves legume growth, improves stand, root growth, and sugar content of sugarbeets.
